Recipe: Roasted Garlic Mustard Coleslaw

Posted by Rachel Roades on

This month we have given our Flavor of the Month award to our Roasted Garlic Mustard. We once again turn to Lancaster Farm Fresh Coop to get this lovely organic garlic. Roasted to savory perfection, we add our garlic to brown and yellow whole grain mustard seeds for an incredible texture and bursts of flavor, then kick it up a notch with white wine and apple cider vinegar. This mustard isn't shy and will brighten up any dish.

For our first recipe with Roasted Garlic Mustard, I whipped up a nice summertime coleslaw.

One of my favorite perks about this job is being at the farmers markets. It's an incredible environment to work in and supporting my fellow vendors while bringing quality food home to my family is a win for everyone. I'm delighted to say that the bulk of our ingredients for this recipe were purchased at the Lansdale Farmers Market.

 

 



Roasted Garlic Mustard from Small Batch       Kitchen (yours truly)


Scallions from Green Zameen Farm
     
Cabbage from Kimberton CSA
     
Honey from Stagecoach Apiaries
     

Another fun thing about shopping around your local farmers markets is seeing the variety on the tables. I have never before seen such large scallions before and the flavor is so fresh and crisp I'm delighted there's so much to work with. I've seen green cabbage, I've seen purple cabbage, I've seen heads that were larger than a pumpkin- but I had never seen a conical cabbage before. It's slightly sweeter than a typical green cabbage and with a little less of a bite- perfect for this recipe.

Shall we get to it then?

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons Roasted Garlic Mustard
4 tablespoons plain unsweetened yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
1 large carrot, shredded
1/3 cup chopped scallions
3 cups of chopped cabbage

Mix together the honey, mustard, yogurt, salt and pepper for the dressing. Add the carrot, cabbage, and scallions to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the dressing and toss to coat.

A fresh and crunchy side, excellent for summer picnics and cookouts.

Happy tasting everyone!

Flavor of the Month: Strawberry Rhubarb

Posted by Rachel Roades on

Time is flying by and this is such an exciting time of year for us. Spring brings us the Farmers Markets and delicious ripe produce. Rhubarb was more than ready for us this season and was ripe right at the beginning of May- just in time for the new Flavor of the Month: Strawberry Rhubarb. 

This exceptional spring flavor is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. With only 2- yes, TWO- grams of sugar per tablespoon this is a decadently guilt free treat. Brighten up your morning with some Strawberry Rhubarb topped yogurt or toast, and amaze your guests with a pound cake or cheesecake topped with Strawberry Rhubarb for dessert. Feeling cheesy? Pair this with chevre, triple creme, or mascarpone for an absolutely phenomenal combination.

So where does it come from?

Let's start with these strawberries. Certified Naturally Grown, our delicious strawberries come from none other than Living Hope Farm in Harleysville, PA. Located less than two miles from our kitchen, we get these beautiful berries the day that they're picked.Starting with perfectly ripened fruit gives us the best leg up to create delicious flavors. In 2018 we purchased over 1,200 pounds of these perfect berries to bring you Balsamic Strawberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, and the very limited Chocolate Strawberry. 

Onto the rhubarb..a truly spectacular vegetable. We get beautiful shades of greens and pinks from Lancaster Farm Fresh Coop in Lancaster, PA. Do you remember them from our very first flavor of the month? They are an amazing coop of over 100 organic farmers in Lancaster. If you're looking for a CSA to join, give their website a visit. In 2018 we purchased 260 pounds of organic rhubarb from LFFC, and this year we plan to purchase close to 1,000! All that beautiful rhubarb to bring you delicious Strawberry Rhubarb and Cardamom Rhubarb spreads.

Happy Tasting!
